I finally picked the winners! That was VERY difficult to do. That's why I write this so late. I didn't expected such amazing designs. You guys did a great job with Your entries. I am just stunned by Your ideas.
Now I am going to describe my thoughts about every entry.
Let's start with disqualified designs.
To be honest, this one was very close to charm me. I love animals with furry necks, and such hybrids. I really like the idea here. But this one is uncolored, which means I couldn't accept it. The rule was to follow my color palette. That's really sad because this design had a big chance.
I liked the name and backstory about this one, but again, it doesn't follow my color palette. This character had very interesting magical spells.
Now qualified designs, and next the winners.
